(Rafael Baledón, 1963) Release date: 31 October 2023 Standard Edition Blu-ray
The atmospheric Mexican chiller The Curse of the Crying Woman (La maldición de la Llorona) fuses the tropes of Gothic horror cinema with Mexican folklore’s most terrifying figure.
The beautiful Amelia (Rosita Arenas) visits her aunt Selma (Rita Macedo) at her remote mansion. There, she uncovers Selma’s plot to sacrifice her and reincarnate the spirit of La Llorona, the legendary ‘crying woman’ who lures travellers to their deaths!
Directed by Rafael Baledón (The Man and the Monster) and co-starring Abel Salazar (The Brainiac), The Curse of the Crying Woman is a masterwork of Gothic cinema in the vein of Mario Bava’s Black Sunday.
